Miniature circular rhodium-plated copper and zinc alloy medal on scroll and ribbon bar suspension; the face with the crowned EIIR cipher of Queen Elizabeth II imposed on a maple leaf, circumscribed ‘CONFEDERATION CONFÉDÉRATION’ and dated ‘1867-1992’ at the base; the reverse with the arms of Canada encircled by the motto ribbon of the Order of Canada inscribed ‘DESIDERANTES MELIOREM PATRIAM’ (Desiring a better country) ensigned by the central portion of the crest of Canada, being a crowned lion holding a maple leaf in the right front paw, and circumscribed below ‘A MARI USQUE AD MARE’ (From sea to sea); diameter 19.25mm (0.76 inch); on original ribbon.

The Medal was instituted on 7 May 1992 to mark the 125th anniversary of the creation of the Federal Dominion of Canada on 1 July 1867 and awarded to Canadians then living ‘from all walks of life, from every region of Canada, from varied ethno-cultural backgrounds and from a multitude of disciplines’ deemed to have made a significant contribution to their fellow citizens, to their community or to Canada.

Nominations were submitted to the Chancellery ‘by Lieutenant Governors and Commissioners of territories, Senators, Members of Parliament, provincial governments, the Public Service Commission of Canada, the Canadian Forces, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, as well as by national organisations in important fields of endeavour’.

Approximately 42,000 full-size medals were awarded.
